It's hard to believe that there still hasn't been a credible Android-based competitor to the iPod touch, but following the underwhelming Z Series Walkman Sony is having another roll of the dice. Details are thin on the newly-announced F800 Series right now, but it has a 3.5-inch screen and, perhaps most importantly, runs Android 4.0 complete with access to Google Play.
That alone should make it a more enticing proposition than similarly-sized competitors such as the Samsung Galaxy Player 3.6, though it's worth noting we have no idea what hardware it's using to power Ice Cream Sandwich. It comes in 8GB, 16GB, and 32GB varieties, and Sony is claiming 4.5 hours battery life for video and 20 hours for audio. No word yet on a release date or price, but we'll let you know when we do.
